BJP to pass '2024 polls' resolution in national executive meeting
The national executive of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is convening in Hyderabad, is expected to approve a political resolution on Saturday. The resolution would most likely outline the party's aims, tactics, and initiatives ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Senior BJP leaders, including PM Narendra Modi, will attend the meeting, and the party's National President JP Nadda will launch the event.
- The BJP is gathering resources to win a third term at the Centre in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
- The ruling party has already formed task forces that will prioritize different works.
- Other responsibilities include designing the campaign trail, PM's strategy in the run-up to the elections, and a focus on LS seats won by the BJP.
According to The Indian Express, the party is also anticipated to approve a major economic resolution outlining the Centre's attempts to curb inflation and mitigate difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, hike in crude oil prices, and the Ukraine-Russia war. PM Modi is expected to deliver the closing comments on Sunday and will afterward address a public gathering at Parade Ground, Hyderabad.
Meanwhile, the political battle between the BJP and Telangana's ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has heated up. The BJP already launched a campaign to depose the TRS government led by K Chandrasekhar Rao. The state government released a statement on Saturday, designating a Cabinet member to see Modi, while CM Rao personally welcomed Opposition presidential candidate Yashwant Sinha, who also visited Telangana on Saturday.
Moreover, Hyderabad also witnessed a grand show of strength by both BJP and TRS. Along the way to the party's national executive meeting location, the BJP has placed flags, banners, and posters of Prime Minister Modi, Nadda, and other party officials. The ruling TRS has also displayed the chief minister's clout, with pink banners strewn around the city to compete with the BJP.
